Support the Legal Aid Foundation

There are 750,000 Colorado residents who are living in poverty, unable to pay for legal services that can help them obtain justice through our legal system. Your donation today will help provide timely access to legal aid for those who have nowhere else to turn. The Legal Aid Foundation’s 2011–12 Campaign For Justice concludes on June 30, so there is still time to make a difference in someone’s life through a tax-deductible donation at legalaidfoundation.org.
